Both are easy to conceal, and both have great ergonomics.
no! get a 19 man! it’s all about the mag availability… or at lease your next glock
Unless the buyer is exempt from California's roster, the Glock 43X or 48 can easily sell for twice the retail price and only via private party transfer (i.e. face to face using an FFL). The $500 budget has just gone up to $1000, but the price to the seller will be negotiable.
Here's a forum dealing specifically with California firearms:
I assume you've handled/held the Glocks? "Great ergonomics" is not a generally accepted feature of Gaston's progeny.
Okay, based on that information, I'm looking at the Glock 19 and 19C.
I didn't consider any .357 handguns before because I couldn't find any under $400
Now that I've upped my budget, and looked at the .357, it intrigues me.
I’m doing 43x or 48x next! reddot make a Glock SHINE
I think the perfect Glock for you would be a 18C
It's not on the CA allowed list.
You also mention CCW. I have read that can be a real horror story to get in California too. Not sure what the law is about concealed carry on your own property though if that is your main concern.
Garand Thumb is on the bias side, Just like all the GunTuber’s, they are extra sponsored
except NothingFancy, gun manufacturers won’t even send him guns unless they know it’s rock solid. What does NothingFancy like??? GLOCK! lol… GTW, get a Glock & a AR
Most of the guns I want are not on the CA-legal list.
I changed my mind about the .357
I've gone back to just looking at 9mm.
The only Glock that I like now is the Glock 19.
Some people don't love the ergonomics of the G19, but it's CA-legal.
I think I'll be getting the G19.
Falling into NutNFamcy's marketing... "Gun manufacturers hate him!!!!".
Just like half the small time channels in the gun and politics realm... "Hit that like and subscribe button... Fight the algorithm... YouTube hates us... Seriously give us more traffic because we need more traffic... It's a conspiracy... Give us money for the conspiracy..."
Excellent 1st choice.
I’m a Simp for good quality gun reviewers! I’m definitely a supporter of good content creators who give their honest options on guns and gear.
Plain Jane vanilla reliable, but watch the limp wristing. I see new shooters do it a lot. Glocks need a high held grip angle. It's easy to biff this if you're stressed too.
Rugers are good.
Have you thought about if you want a manual safety or not? When I was new, I liked the safety. You still need to be smart and keep your finger off the trigger until you're on target and intending to launch a bullet, but it was an appreciated feature for me at the time.
Glock considers the doodad in the trigger to be the safety, but this safety can be disengaged by a bit of shirt getting between the trigger and guard during reholstering, etc. You see negligent discharges among police officers occasionally during reholstering. In Israel they carry their Glock 19s condition three or empty chamber. Not a big fan of that personally.
Don't discount a new or used example of the original wonder nines, which were largely metal framed, usually aluminum. I'm talking about the Beretta 92fs or sig p226, Hi power or Smith and Wesson 5906 Ruger p89 etc. There are too many to list really.
You said you're a dude with big hands and a sig 226 fits me, as a dude with big hands, quite well. The Beretta is a skinny svelte thing compared to the sig.
Not to muddy the waters too much, but I didn't think about my desire for a safety until I'd bought a couple guns. I remember being new.
Range time is good. Hit me up if you have any questions or want to chat. I'm in Illinois so I can somewhat relate to crappy gun laws.
probably with the grip angle of glock is you get muscle memory to it.
Very True! Good Gun Companies warranty their stuff for life. That’s atlease worth $250 to the deal
There is nothing wrong with them either. They are just as square and boxey as a Glock.
Hard to go wrong.
